Perfectly designed by Alexandra Rae Design for a young family in California, this beach inspired home showcases beautiful interiors and a dreamy blue and white kitchen.
According to the designer, the homeowners wanted to feel like they were at a beach house everyday, and to achieve this, the designer worked with a palette of cool blues, greens, and neutrals to evoke a sense of sun, sea and sky.
Mixing timeless wainscoting with grasscloth wallpaper and coastal decor, this beach inspired home feels classic, comfortable and oh-so-pretty! Let’s start pinning?
If you want to know my style, just take a look at the picture above. I love every detail found in this space, including the built-ins and the soothing color palette.
The walls in this foyer are covered in a blue grasscloth wallpaper, Thibaut Eastgate in Blue.
The designer blended modern, classic and coastal elements to make of this a fun, family-friendly house for everyday living, and this living room is a good example of that.
Floor-to ceiling windows flood the living room with natural light.
Sofas are custom through Kravet – they can be ordered through the designer. The fabric was an outdoor soft chenille.
